The webinar will include information about proactive steps entities and individuals can take to exceed HIPAA's minimum requirements in light of the government's heightened enforcement activity.

The costs of non-compliance with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules increase every day. Protected Health Information (PHI) is the backbone of the healthcare sector. Law firms, technology providers, and others are now routinely storing and exchanging electronic PHI (ePHI) as well.

Whether you are a healthcare provider, work with a business that receives ePHI, or are a newer or seasoned attorney (in healthcare or practicing in other specialties), it is important for everyone who works with entities and individuals that handle PHI to have a sound understanding of HIPAA requirements.
